Hey all, I'm starting my nursing program in 4 short weeks and was curious what your go-to foods for energy are? I'm trying really hard to focus on eating foods for energy for long days and lots of studying! Would love to see your thoughts...

I can relate because most of us work long hard 12 hour shifts that stretch into longer. Besides eating a good breakfast and lunch, I energize with fruit....I eat breakfast around 5:30AM and then around 9 or 10 I eat an apple, orange, grapefruit or peach as time allows...then lunch is usually around 12 to 1pm....and then around 4pm to 5pm I'm eating some blueberries and raspberries and that seems to do the trick until dinnertime around 8 or 9pm. If my main meals include some protein and fats, it's complex carbs that give me lasting energy in between.

All the best!

Tofu especially with nutritional yeast flakes added! Plus whole grains like brown rice. This has B vitamins for energy, protein and complex carbs for long lasting energy.

Tofu can can be scrambled like eggs. If u add sunflower seeds and garlic and onion you will add protein and antioxidants. Sometimes I add broccoli if I eat this for lunch.

*a pinch of generic adds a yellow color and has an anti inflammatory effect.

Tofu can be added to fried (brown) rice, also.

I feel light abd and energized after I eat it.

I think food with lots of fiber and protein provide sustained energey and keep you from getting hungry.

Fruit is a great quick energizer.

Nothing helps me much unless I've had enough sleep.
